  Oat Cell Lung Cancer - Small Cell Lung Cancer - Paul, Hanley & Harley, LLP
Small or oat cell lung cancer is also much less common than non-small cell lung cancer, accounting for only about 20 percent of all types of lung cancer.
Because it is such a progressive disease, oat cell lung cancer tends to form metastases in the lung and in nearby organs-and once these metastases develop, it is too late to perform surgery.
Instead, the oat cell lung cancer and the metastases are typically treated with cryosurgery (during which oat cell lung cancer cells are frozen and destroyed), radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.

By light microscopy the cells of Merkel cell carcinoma are round to ovoid with scanty cytoplasm and the nuclei are round to ovoid and measure 14 to 20 microns with chromatin that is fine and dispersed.
Merkel cell carcinoma is often associated with other neoplasms, the most frequent of which is squamous cell carcinoma in which it has either been resected earlier from the skin of the same anatomic site involved by the Merkel cell carcinoma or the two tumors coexist.
Merkel cell carcinoma is a radiosensitive tumor and is recommended for all patients due to its aggressive nature, the high rate of locoregional recurrence and the association of distant metastases with the initial locoregional recurrence.
